-"​Gardens encourage and accommodate a broad range of activities; in substance these have changed little through the centuries and are recorded in garden paintings from late medieval French manuscripts to Fragonard and Pater. Gardens are territories of play - both play as alternative to work or business and play as theater, make-believe,​ the whole gamut of role playing that is human life. Though this last is not obviously confined to gardens, it flourished there because gardens are special sites of artifice pretending to be nature; though if you were convinced a garden was wholly natural, you were tempted to think you could dispense with role playing." ​(John Dixon Hunt, //Gardens and the Picturesque,//​ p. 263)+"​Gardens encourage and accommodate a broad range of activities; in substance these have changed little through the centuries and are recorded in garden paintings from late medieval French manuscripts to Fragonard and Pater.

-Germination X is "a permaculture game for social networking platforms."​+Germination X is "a permaculture game for social networking platforms" and was a fertile spinoff of research into robot social intelligence initially conducted for the [[:​project_lirec|LIREC]] project, incorporating a state-of-the-art AI system based on [[lirec:​Fatima]]The basic concept of GerminationX is that you can sew seeds and see other players'​ plants, which grow along the lines of a model that simulates companion planting. The plant species represented in the game should be local, interesting or endangered, as well as more "popular"​ kinds. You have a guide or companion who assists you to companion plant, but players themselves never meet directly through the game – though they become indirectly aware of one another through their planting activities. Though it is big, you can only encounter a small part of the game world at a time.

-  * [[:​luminous_green]] +Luminous Green is a workshop about the world. About the world that supports life today and about the possible worlds that can support more luminous life in the future. It is a gathering of people who can imagine, cultivate and inhabit such a world. People who consider themselves creative thinkers, doers and makers. Who deploy their creativity and imagination to shape a brighter future, disentangling themselves and their practices from the unsustainable and unnatural. '​Luminous Green' will seek out lush worlds and find fertile ways of growing them.
